I had the Season Photo Pass for the 2016, 2018, and 2019 seasons. I loved it in 2016, but not so much in 2018 or 2019. For each season, Six Flags has put maskings associated with each ride around the photos. For example, for Raging Bull, the masking runs across the top and bottom thirds of the photo, with a picture of a bull in the upper righthand corner, the SFGAm logo in the upper left, and the Raging Bull logo at the lower right.

In 2016, you were able to remove the maskings before downloading the digital photos. However, in 2018 and 2019, the masking could only be removed by a photo kiosk employee before the photo was uploaded to your account. If you were lucky to get an 18 year old employee working the kiosk, there was a 3 in 4 chance that you could get them to remove the masking. If you were unlucky and a manager was working the kiosk, I could only get them to remove the masking 25% of the time.

What's wrong with these maskings? If I'm paying for a photo, I'm not happy with Six Flags covering 2/3 of the photo area with ad space. During Fright Fest in 2018, the Raging Bull photos were zoomed a bit, so the masking was covering everything except the faces of the people in my row. Useless.
